Hypnotherapy

Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy (SFH) helps people take control of their thoughts and find solutions to a problem rather than focussing on the problem itself. SFH can help with a wide variety of issues, from anxiety and depression to pain and addiction.

In short, it can help with anything you perceive to be a problem or that is stopping you living your life the way you want. 

£30 per session

Acupuncture 

Acupuncture has been used as a complementary treatment for MS in the UK since the 1970s and has been shown to stabilise and improve many symptoms associated with neurological conditions.

Ongoing research and modern acupuncture techniques continue to yield further improvements, which are well documented.

Initial consultation £35

£26 thereafter

Reflexology

Reflexology  involves stimulating reflex points on the soles of the feet to induce therapeutic effects in different parts of the body.

Reflexology can be effective in alleviating aches and pains, fatigue and spasms, relaxing muscles and reducing stress – all of which can help people in the management of their neurological symptoms.

£15 per session

Payment direct to therapist

*Where a suggested minimum contribution is shown this is the amount that we would like members to contribute towards their therapy, however, we have never denied someone support due to financial reasons and we never will.

We continually fundraise to subsidise the costs of therapies and do not profit from member contributions.
